Recalling God’s Provision
Take some time today to look at your own life and recall the mighty provision of God in spiritual and physical deliverance in your own life. Start at the point of your salvation. Stop for a moment and think what God has saved you from and the transformation that has come into your life since you have known Jesus as your personal Savior.
Can you remember something God did for you in the past — that answered prayer, that healing in your body, that financial miracle, the blessing in your home? Begin to recall the acts of physical healing and deliverance that you or your own immediate family have received.
If you are a new-born Christian and none of your family have ever had a real born-again experience, then read in the Bible the miracle stories of God’s deliverance. Read what God has done in the past, but also be aware of the fact that God is still performing outstanding miracles in our day because “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8, NIV).
Although in the natural you may not have a family member that has had a true spiritual experience with God, you are part of the great family of God in the earth today and when you hear of a miracle someone else has received, you can rejoice just as if it were your own flesh and blood.
Realize that God is no respecter of persons and what He has done for anyone else, He will do for you in your life. Don’t forget for one moment that the same nail-scarred hand that was laid upon your sin-fevered brow brought you perfect peace which is the greatest miracle in all the world. God is standing by your side right now to deliver you from the problem that is troubling you today. What God did for you in the past, He will do for you again. Remember what God did for you in the past and you will know what He is going to do for you in the future.
Why is there such a tremendous interest in the occult, and in particular, predictions of the future in the realm of psychic phenomena, fortune-telling, and astrology in this present hour? People have never been more insecure about the future. They want to know what is going to happen, whether it be good or bad. We don’t need any crystal-ball gazer to tell us how to solve our problems and that the daily astrology chart is the guide of our life. Our faith stands on the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God!
Make this declaration:
My faith stands in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. He knows my future. He holds my today and tomorrow in His hands.
